The Master Series Pistol Rest
The Ransom Master Series Rest represents the handgun shooter we all wish we could be.
The original Master Series handgun shooting rest was designed in the late 60s for testing, pistols and ammunition for repeatability and accuracy. A machine rest is useless if not duplicatable by the end user. The Master Series Rest was designed to duplicate the human hand as closely as possible. It holds fires and recoils like the human wrist and hand does, in a coaxial motion.
It is a precision, passive device that holds, fires, and recoils as nearly like the human hand as possible.
It eliminates the human inconsistencies that ordinarily make handgun testing unreliable. It is the only machine rest to successfully accomplish the goal of precise, repeatable handgun accuracy testing. ,It has become an international standard for accuracy testing since 1968.
RANSOM MASTER SERIES REST INCLUDES MOUNTING SCREWS & RELATED HARDWARE.
THE MASTER SERIES REST
ACCURACY & NATURAL MOVEMENT
The Ransom Master Series Rest® is the only machine to successfully accomplish the goal of ultimate precision with natural, human-like motion. The proof it has achieved this purpose is attested to by its worldwide use by many major handgun manufacturers, handgun ammunition makers, and pistolsmiths who build or modify high-quality handguns.
Ransom Rest fires each shot with near-perfect consistency. It is the only machine rest that is known to successfully accomplish this goal. That is attested to by its worldwide use by major handgun manufacturers, handgun ammunition makers, and pistol smiths who build or modify high-quality handguns.
Solving the multitude of problems was not simple and required long study and testing. The resultant machine is a combination of carefully chosen design features and special materials. The Ransom Rest therefore looks and operates like no other rest because it is the only one to identify and solve the defined problems.
THOUSANDS OF GRIP INSERT OPTIONS
To duplicate the grip of the hand, “grip inserts” are used. Over 350+ grip insert models are available supporting over 800 models of firearms because each gun model must be held as precisely as possible. The Ransom inserts provide the proper hold, remaining just resilient enough to reproduce a shooter’s handhold.
The recoil from each shot is absorbed in the first few milliseconds not only by the grip insert, but by a disc brake like device. The Ransom mechanism breaks each shot in an identical manner. (The Ransom rest is capable of handling recoil up to and including the -44 Magnum.)
The trigger on the rest is lever actuated. Since this feature provides mechanical isolation, trigger-pull inconsistencies are almost completely eliminated. Additionally, the operator will not flinch because he is no longer gripping the gun or anticipating recoil.
All Grip Inserts are attached to The Ransom Master Series Rest® by the A,B,C plate Retained by three star-knobs Insert changes are easily accomplished but firmly held Grip Inserts for The Ransom Master Series Rest® are sold separately and can be found on website but for an exhaustive list or a complete updated list please call and see if we have that model grip insert. Blanks and custom Grip Inserts are available.

TIPS FOR USING THE RANSOM
MASTER SERIES REST
TIPS FOR USING THE RANSOM MASTER SERIES REST
We suggest your Ransom Master Series Rest is firmly attached to a wooden base. We recommend 1inch thick plywood, with 1x1inch wooden strips at the front and rear of the wooden base to isolate the Ransom Master Series Rest from twisting forces that may be applied when the base is clamped to the shooting bench. Make sure the wooden base that you design is firmly clamped to the shooting bench, and that the bench itself is sound and secure. C-clamps represent a quick, easy and portable method for clamping the wooden base to the shooting bench. The wooden base used for the Ransom Master Series Rest should be level. If the rest is not level, accuracy and repeatability of shooting tests may be affected. Replacement parts can be Purchased at Ransom Please Call or Email Us for Pricing.
